The William J. Clinton Leadership Institute, Queen’s University, Belfast is delighted to welcome the Help to Grow: Management scheme to Northern Ireland, following its recent launch.
The Help to Grow: Management Course offers business leaders 50 hours of leadership and management training across 12 weeks, backed by £220 million of government funding, which covers 90% of the costs involved.
It means that for as little as £750 business leaders can benefit from one-to-one support from a business mentor, access to a network of like-minded business leaders, and a bespoke growth plan to help the business reach its full potential.
The course offers development opportunities for business leaders, boosting productivity and growing their companies which can lead to more high-skill, high-wage jobs.
Courses are delivered by business schools accredited by the Small Business Charter. The two Business Schools that are delivering the course in Northern Ireland are the William J. Clinton Leadership Institute, Queen’s Management School and the Ulster University Business School.
Professor Mark Durkin, Executive Dean of Ulster University Business School opened the event and Professor M.N. Ravishankar, Dean and Head of School at Queen’s Management School closed the event. UK Government Small Business Minister Paul Scully delivered a recorded message.
Courses have been running at business schools since June 2021. Feedback on the training has been excellent, with business leaders reporting they benefit from greater confidence in leading and managing their businesses as a result of their participation.
Professor M.N. Ravishankar, Dean and Head of School at Queen’s Management School, said: “Supporting Northern Ireland’s business leaders and the SME community is central to our focus at Queen’s Management School. The Help to Grow: Management Course offers Northern Ireland’s small business leaders the opportunity to develop new skills and knowledge and to better prepare for the future.”
The programme is due to commence at the William J. Clinton Leadership Institute, Queen’s University, Belfast on the 23rd September 2022.
